The volume of international climate finance for adaptation is increasing. At the same time, adaptation planning is preparing the ground for implementation in many countries. The demand for adaptation technologies is likewise growing, while improving access to adaptation technologies has become a priority for political actors. To meet these needs, a new institutional set up was created following the UNFCCC Cancun Agreements of 2010 called the ‘Technology Mechanism’, which is designed to promote the transfer of such technologies to developing countries. The mechanism is comprised of the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN).
